It's called: BI-WINNING
Double-Double. Some people can spend their whole life studding and never achieve anything. This guy is born that way and spend his life studding its not either its both.

Yay for him. That's a hell of a lot of money to have when you're 17.

I'm 28, still in college and ALMOST pulled off a B (I got a C) in college algebra. I'm pretty impressed with this guy.

I thought they would have said it was the high-school equivalent of the Millennium Prize. But wow, that's quite an accomplishment!

Hard work always pays off in the end.

Don't think home schooling is going to reflect poorly in his university studies. Home schoolers' only degrade if they were isolated from the outside world; which causes many social anxieties. This guy got in front of an audience with a smile on his face. He does not appear to have any extreme social anxieties that will cost him his first year in university.

There are no genetic information for intelligence; only disorders. If you don't believe me, go find a strand on a chromosome that dictates intelligence.

Chromosome 2 has correlations to "intelligent" human beings.

But like anyone who has seen gatica, it raises the question of hard work and human morale.
